Bond backtracks over Modric comments

Tottenham Hotspur assistant manager Kevin Bond has backtracked over comments that Luka Modric could leave if the club's valuation of the player is met.

• Chelsea weigh up Modric bid
• Blues warned over Modric fee

Chelsea have seen offers of £22 million and £27 million turned down by Tottenham, who are determined to retain Modric's services following his fine form last season. But Blues chief executive Ron Gourlay confirmed on Sunday the club are considering making a third bid for the 25-year-old Croatia international.

On Monday, Bond told talkSPORT: "Transfers are part and parcel of the game but you don't want to lose your best players and he certainly is one of our best players. We desperately don't want to lose him but everyone has a price.

"If somebody came along and the money turns your head and he did go - although the chairman is adamant he doesn't want to sell him - then we'd have to get on with it. Harry would have to deal elsewhere in market."

However, Bond later issued a statement maintaining that his intentions had been misrepresented: "For the purpose of clarification and in case my comments this morning inadvertently misled anyone, the Club's position on Luka Modric is quite clear - we have no intention of selling him."
